Moses Dies 34 1Then Moses climbed Mount Nebo from the plains of Moab to the top of Mount Pisgah, across from Jericho. From there the Lord showed him all the land from Gilead to Dan, 2all of Naphtali and the lands of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Mediterranean Sea, 3as well as the southern desert and the whole Valley of Jericho up to Zoar. (Jericho is called the city of palm trees.) 4Then the Lord said to Moses, “This is the land I promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob when I said to them, ‘I will give this land to your descendants.’ I have let you look at it, Moses, but you will not cross over there.” 5Then Moses, the servant of the Lord, died there in Moab, as the Lord had said. 6He buried Moses in Moab in the valley opposite Beth Peor, but even today no one knows where his grave is. 7Moses was one hundred twenty years old when he died. His eyes were not weak, and he was still strong. 8The Israelites cried for Moses for thirty days, staying in the plains of Moab until the time of sadness was over. 9Joshua son of Nun was then filled with wisdom, because Moses had put his hands on him. So the Israelites listened to Joshua, and they did what the Lord had commanded Moses. 10There has never been another prophet in Israel like Moses. The Lord knew Moses face to face 11and sent him to do signs and miracles in Egypt— to the king, to all his officers, and to the whole land of Egypt. 12Moses had great power, and he did great and wonderful things for all the Israelites to see.
